It’s All Good, the much anticipated cookbook from Gwyneth Paltrow, that hit store shelves this week, is being roundly criticized for making eating good seem like something only the super wealthy can afford.
In fact, it would cost $300 a DAY to feed a family, based on Paltrow’s recipes, according to a breakdown done by Yahoo!
Her egg white omelet, for instance, calls for duck eggs and will cost you $30 to make. Her fish fingers recipe for kids will set you back $71.50.
Still, that’s nothing compared to her tuna salad recipe. To start, you’ll need to run out and get some Manuka honey, which averages about $25 a jar. And the entire recipe will set you back $120!
“It’s All Good is drenched in a chatty faux-populism that could only come from a rich person fearlessly boasting about her life of privilege,” writes the critic at Eater.com.
“The book reads like the manifesto to some sort of creepy healthy-girl sorority with members who use beet juice rather than permanent marker to circle the ‘problem areas’ on each other’s bodies,” according to the New York Post.
And according to The Atlantic, “It’s All Good seems to take laughable Hollywood neuroticism about eating to the next level.”
Says the critic at Yahoo! “Seriously Gwyneth, we want to eat with you. But we can’t afford it. Unless you’re buying, Of course.”
